New Delhi, Nov 29 (UNI) Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister Murli Deora today said power projects of 1,285 megawatt capacity are pending for commissioning due to shortage of gas.

In a written reply in Lok Sabha, he said projects with 590 MW capacity have been commissioned but are unable to generate power due to non-availability of gas supply. He said gas required for these plants at 90 per cent plant load factor is 2.84 million metric standard cubic meter per day (mmscmd).
